Rights group: Syria barring medics from protests

HRW also said that Syrian security forces prevented medics from reaching protesters after clashes in anti-government demonstrations, AFP reported.
Access to medical treatment was blocked in Daraa.
"Barring people from needed medical care causes grave suffering and perhaps irreparable harm," Sarah Leah Whitson, HRW's Middle East director, told AFP. "To deprive wounded people of critical and perhaps life-saving medical treatment is both inhumane and illegal."
